Forfar fans not fussed.

He is like McCord, looks heavy and unfit but can finish if he gets the service and as we know we are creating but not finishing.

C'mon City, Jacko.......

Farfar lot hated him from the off because he came from us. He was on a hiding to nothing. .....Hope it turns out like Fusco when he returned from there ...................He said that was the darkest time of his career.

Completely disagree with that one. Thought Jackson would be a good signing. He just never looked fit and took a really bad one. Hope that he scores goals for you and keeps you up. Him and Shagger could be a decent (if ageing) strikeforce Didn’t rate Fusco though

That's definitely not the case. It was obvious from the start he was not 100% fit and carrying a 'few' extra pounds. I was willing him to deliver but sadly he didn't. A terrible injury didn't help. But nothing to do with coming from along the road!

Eh?

Everybody I spoke to thought it was a good signing and mind he did play for us before but he's never looked anything like fit. Here's hoping he helps get you out of trouble though.

Brechin are doomed if they don't get their finger out and get a few decent signings in.

Jackson not a big part of the previous teams that have been relegated and got you into this position?

Fair play to "theoriginalhedge" and his "everyone's-against-little-old-Brechin-City" schtick, even in the face of damning contrary evidence.

I'm damned . ;)🎣

Aye but Dods and Smith were in charge during that slide .  Jacko had to play as a striker , winger and attacking midfielder all in the same game as everyone else was defending............I say defending in the loosest possible term .

Brechin City: 'As bad as it gets' as they 'struggle' to contemplate third relegation https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51066521

Re. Pyramid. Great to see how it has expanded the game to allow up and coming ambitious clubs to replace deadwood and grow the game.

Well, not exactly. If the purpose of the Pyramid was to allow more bank-rolled teams from urban centres, with large potential fan-bases, already having senior teams, to progress, then fair play, it has worked.

The alternative is to have rich persons' playthings from the sticks to emulate Brooks Mileson's Gretna.

Maybe the Pyramid system was the fresh air Scottish fitba needed but looking at the situation of relegated Stenny and Brechin set against newcomers Edinburgh City and Cove, something seems out of kilter*.

Shouldn't there be some kind of financial fair play regulations to stop the likes of another Gretna crash and burn, or to avoid killing the senior game in smaller towns and cities?

Hope Brechin get sorted.

Disappointed that we have resigned someone who is overweight and unfit and getting too old.Hope any other signings we get are going to be of use.Or the so called fighting fund was/is a waste of time.

Birthday caird pish. There are plenty of smaller towns that support senior football by putting a competent team on the park; then there are stupid wee glorified social clubs who think it’s okay to tank to an 80 goal conceded season so long as there’s one other crap team in the division (Berwick’s M.O last season) or do nothing to compete at a higher level, try to suck off the teat of larger clubs and set the most embarrassing, all time low points total in the process (Brechin 2017-18). And even when they slump to the bottom of the pile as a result, the crap senior club still gets the luxury of a playoff with the second leg at home, instead of being automatically flushed out of the division as happens in every other league where relegation exists.

So stop blaming big, bad outsiders for the piss-poor decisions that send dung teams to the abyss and have take responsibility for their own actions.

So mince like Stenny and Brechin should be allowed to stay in the SPFL because of "tradition" - jesus wept.

The Shire stank the leagues up for almost 2 decades before being rightly relegated, the sooner we have an active pyramid that clears the deadwood out of the SPFL and replaces them with ambitious teams the better.

That was one guy's opinion and not an excuse by the way.  We are where we are due to 2 bad managerial appointments on the trot and acts of loyalty to keep  them employed  longer than they should .  For the record we have put many competent teams on the park over the past 40 years or so  and your club even saw us as so much a threat that they paid ridiculous amounts of money to take our better players away. :lol: ( Must be a big team thing to do) . 

Just carry on with your shoulder chip laden obsession with our club if that's what rocks your boat.   We will be fine . The responsibility has been acted upon .  Have a nice day.
